Paris Jackson

I Got Spirit

... FREE SPIRIT!

breaking news

0306_paris_jackson_cheerleader_splash_v2One minute she's a football player ... the next, Paris Jackson is pom-pomming her face off on her prep school's cheerleading squad ... another sign MJ's daughter is as free a spirit as he was.

Paris -- sporting a short new 'do -- hit the hardwood and rooted on the Buckley School basketball team in L.A. yesterday ... while hamming it up for the cameras.

It's just the latest predictably unpredictable move for the 14-year-old ... who was just playing for the school's flag football team in 2011 -- she's kinda like "Icebox" from "Little Giants" ... only WAYY more bad ass.

Besides the sports, Jackson is also an aspiring actress ... political activist ... model ... and Bieber-enthusiast.

Funny, Michael spent so much time trying to keep his children out of the spotlight ... but now, it seems she's reveling in it.

I always thought it was extra creepy how MJ's fans like to gush about how pretty she is. Perhaps the pedo sympathy leaked in a bit.


It's also creepy that they like to put the false idol characteristics on her and the other kids that they believe were part of MJ's (propaganda) "talents".


Fans that do this are really not supporting her like this the way they think they are. They are casting just as much of a negative shadow on her (them) as the people saying bad things. You are setting them up for failure by portraying an image on them they can never live up to. Then again, fans would never want to believe they, themselves, were a big part of MJ's mental conditions which were part of his downfall.


One positive thing is that without the person they think of as their "great father" is no longer around to keep them from even the slightest hope for a normal life. Now if they can only get away from the rest of them.


Then again I seriously think they are not thought of every day as "MJ's kids", they will have every advantage in pursuing anything they want, even if it is just at the constant fear of a lawsuit. Think of it, would you want to be the cheer leading coach or drama teacher earning $37k a year, that cuts a Jackson?

Looks like someone in the audience took the video and sold it to TMZ.
How can TMZ justify publishing this?
They know the story will attract overly critical comments and yet they refuse to censor them.
Is it right that ANY child should be subjected to this?
Imagine if YOUR daughter or grand-daughter was constantly watched and criticized by the media. How would you feel?

God I wish she had just listened to her dad. He may have had his shortcomings but he was trying to stop his kids from having the same ones.

Not fair to say she's "reveling" in the spotlight. She's just doing what normal teens do, and that's ok.
